Hi, would just like to ask if I were to buy any camera equipment for my Canon D400 from Hong Kong, what and where should I buy from or should I even get it from Hong Kong?
Are the flash and lenses sold there reliable?

It's the same flash and lenses as you'd get in any other country, so saying "are they reliable" is a bit silly, really. There are many threads about shopping for lenses in HK, but for your 400D (note it's 400D, not D400, you really should know the model of your own camera) I suggest trying a search in the Canon forum.

hi, I just went Hong Kong last week; was at a street parallel to the 'lady's street', got quite a number of electrical and electronic stores.
I bought a B+W CP filter and friend bought a Cannon wide angle. Price about 10% cheaper, and we didn't bargain.
Warranty wise, got international warranty for Cannon products. Guess must be same for Nikon.
Hope this is useful.

body no international warranty. Lens and flash have but make sure got the "canon international warranty system " (circle with a plus like sign in the middle)

How is their service? Allow to test the cam and lens b4 buying? Paying cash cheaper?

Wow great pricing. Higher value items are more worth while but there is always risk, esp for the body since Canon (SIN) does not support the warranty.
Very sure it is at 57 - check out their web site : http://www.wingshingphoto.com/
